We're off!  Get me away!  Yes!  The ferry is horrible again, but nonetheless it is bringing me to the sweet, sweet mainland, and finally off the devils own rock.

A heavy day, night and day of travel lies ahead of us.  Mike, myself and two friends we met in Antigua are undertaking something of an odyssey to Leon in Nicaragua.  It will involve a one hour ferry, a three hour bus ride, a night in a petrol station and a twelve hour bus ride.  Eventually we hope to make it to our destination alive and in one piece.

The travel passes pretty well without major incident.  Staying awake all night in a petrol station is an interesting experience.  An odd collection of locals glare at our merry band with a mixture of interest and possible threat.  San Pedro Sula is not a place to hang around generally.  The all night "On The Run" chicken diner come petrol station is safe enough though, and we make it to the Tica bus tired but intact.  The only issue was the security guard telling us we couldn't play cards...(?)  With his job that slow, perhaps it isn't so dangerous after all.
